NEK ( Filippo Neviani) borns 35 years ago, in a little country village near Modena, in Emilia Romagna, the region that has the most good italian's cooking and home of many italian artists.
He starts to play music only 4 years old, and only 12 years old when, with his best friend open a 'Country-western' band: "Winchester", at 18 years changes band "White Lady" where he pubblish his firsts songs (he writes the music) and in few times he becomes the frontman of the band.
He has a good voice and plays the guitar; that thing helps to him, in '91 to becames Nek, where he writes all music together his old friend-band Paolo Cassiano, and texts writes by others.
That 'team' will be the same just to now. We can catalogues Nek's music as 'melodic rock', or 'melodic pop', it's sure that is a kind of commercial music.
In '93 he partecipates to Sanremo and all italian pubblic knows him, but the big success arrives, thanks to Sanremo, of course, with "Laura non c'è".
In the competion his song is only 7th, but all lp " Lei, gli amici, tutto il resto" is one of more sold in Italy on '97 with 600,000 copies, and pubblished in Europe and in South America.
That album sold 2 million copies in all the world; the year after to follow that success, Nek's producers pubblishs the movie "Laura non c'è", where Nek writes the soundtrack and compares in the lasts scenes.
After that, he has had many success; now, Nek is popular, he sold the most part of his music in South America
